The only time I've seen a horse do that was when she was dead lame on one of her legs and she didn't want to move.
As far as the bit, I know of the typical grazing bit, which is a curb bit. But not a snaffle....
She only does it when im riding and I didnt think about the saddle thing my saddle I rode her with pinched her withers I bought a new one but I havent road in it yet. And as for the comand thing I don't think I was confusing here lol its not hard or anything to tell a horse to turn. She even did it with every other rider that rode her with that saddle so im positive it wasnt me. I do think the sadlle had something to do with it though. And thank you for the info about the bit they just told me it was called a grazing snaffle, I looked at it and it kind of resembled a tom thumb I havent been able to find it.. but maybe its bc I was looking for a grazing snaffle and not a grazing curb?
Thanks for all your help :)
